Certification/licensure is not automatic; the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) administers all certification examinations upon completion of a Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) recognized educational program. Completion of the Jackson College EMS program does not guarantee eligibility for NREMT/MDCH certification/licensure.
Upon successful completion of a certificate of study, the course instructor will provide an application to the student for examination by the National Registry. Successful completion of the National Registry practical and written examination is used to apply for a State of Michigan license. Registry certification may also be used to apply for licensing in other states where it is accepted. The Registry Examination form will be completed in the following classes:
- Medical First Responder
- Basic EMT
- Specialist/Advanced EMT
- EMS Instructor Coordinator (State of Michigan Only)
